It was described as an app that can communicate with Pokémon Bank, Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee, Pokémon Sword & Shield, and also Pokémon Go. It also announced that there will be global trades via the internet, as well as a feature that allows for local trading via the app on a mobile device.

This app cannot be used to bypass Pokémon Go's trading limitations, since you cannot transfer back to Go. They plan to launch the system early 2020. It is not known whether it will be a worldwide simultaneous release, or have staggered regional release dates.
